Have to start somewhere my friend. By the way I use 2 cups of sugar in my sweet tea, I call it nectar but my dentist calls it cha-ching.



I was once at this bar in Greensboro with a few friends after a wedding and we were all quite hungover just trying to drink the hangover away as we had another day there/waiting for the next day brunch.

This older fella, had to be about 50s or 60s asked for a sweet tea
The bartender gives it to him, and then he asks for maple syrup

I shite you not be put maple syrup in his glass of sweet tea

re: Let's Make This Board Great Again
Also speaking of food.

This is going around then Internet and I kind of have a bone to pick with it

I know people born in the north that have scored in the 20s

Doesn’t mean they are fricking southerners

I'll firmly and proudly state, My wife makes the best Shrimp and Grits on the planet!

We get 4 Oaks country ham shipped in specifically for it.

We just swing by there on pur way into town given it's our exit exit off of I-20.

Shrimp and grits are my specialty too. I serve them at early games at the Cockaboose every season.

No doubt the key is getting thr grits right, which is an all night thing for me, and getting the redeye gravy right and then getting the sausage and pepper relish for the garnish right.

Hell, I had most of those just this past Tuesday at Shealy's BBQ .... wait, where's the fried catfish?

Yeah, that scoring scale is outta whack.

We've all probably had every single item on that list plus some. My parents had a restaurant for thirty years and there are some purely southern things missing from that list.

Frogmore Stew
Liver Nips
Carrots & Apples
Catfish Stew
Fried Turkey
Perlo
Collards & kraut

I mean that list may have very well been made by a yankee. We should redo it and make it right.

In this day and age, you can get all of these things everywhere

I bet you i can find restaurants here that make all this shit

Moon Pies
Pork Rinds
Mac & Cheese (old school with real butter, heavy whipping cream, and real cheese)
Whipped Potatoes (double cooked, with sweet butter and real cream)
Chicken Salad (real southern style)
Egg Salad (not store bought)
Moonshine
Okra
Catfish
Crawfish
Boudin
Sally Lunn (technically English but popular in the old south)
Olive Nut Sandwich
Blackberry Cobbler
Slaw Dogs

What self respecting southerner would buy a country ham?

Even after we moved into the city we still had hams aging in the basement.

Still have not served them to me *I haz sad face*



Seriously tho, more and more tailgates seem to be store bought food and meats. Do kids today just not have their old family recipes any more or are they just not trained to prepare them?


I dislike Trump for dumping US dairy on CAN as at least the Canucks still have the dairy of my childhood. Chocolate is way better too! Real dairy is a big part of what made the southern food of my youth so delicious!

Shameless plug for grits...

Since 1865, and still use an old stone to grind.

Scrooster may already know these folks and I have known them for ages.

On a side note, can you still get shad roe in SC?

re: Let's Make This Board Great Again
Being from Conway, we have at least two fresh fish markets where you can buy it. I once knew of several "fish camp" style eateries where you could order it as well.

I am not as familiar with the more commercial seafood restaurants, because I don't eat it personally, but it wouldn't surprise me if family-owned restaurants in Calabash or Murrells Inlet also offered it on their menus....

Charleston areas, like Mt. Pleasant, are also sources for shad. They usually come in season around early spring, as you know.....

Luvan's Old South Fish Camp on Hwy 701 South between Pitch Landing and Toddville. It's on the menu between mid-February and April.

Also, any church men's group in Conway, Bucksport, Aynor or Galivants Ferry will have multiple men (especially older retired folks) who do nothing but shad fish that time of year. In fact, my extended family has a place just south of Yauhannah near the Little Pee Dee where my Grandma and great aunts and uncles would go every spring to play cards and have a fish fry.

Yep, Walterboro Hotel during the season if you don't mind waiting in line for an hour to get in.
